By Indianexpress 04-Jun-2019
Patnekar defeated Congress’s candidate Pratapsinh Rane after receiving 22 votes in comparison to his 16 votes in the 40-member House.
Patnekar was nominated after MLA Michael Lobo, who was officiating as Speaker, refused to take up the post on a full-time basis citing concerns regarding restriction of freedom to take up issues concerning public interest.
Rajesh Patnekar, who is an MLA from Bicholim in North Goa, had filed his nomination papers on Monday in the presence of CM Sawant and Deputy CMs Vijai Sardesai and Manohar Ajgaonkar.
Rane congratulated Patnekar after his victory.
